Rambo-Themed CFL Commercial From the 1986 is Fairly Amazing [Video]

Stephen Douglas

Anyway, this ad features Nick Hebeler, Rick Goltz and Al Johns of the ’86 Roughriders squad. They are apparently trying out for the “new Rambo movie.” Each time I listen to these guys speak, I think I’m listening to a new Trailer Park Boys movie where they actually try out for a new Rambo movie. Since this is 1986 I’m not sure if they were pointlessly trying to get in Rambo: First Blood Part II (released in 1985) or looking way down the line at a possible part in Rambo III (1988). Since this is Canada, Rambo II probably wasn’t scheduled for a territorial release until 1987.
